Supporting innovative ideas

We’re supporting new ideas that can help us address some of sustainability’s most difficult problems. In 2010, we started the Creating Shared Value (CSV) prize to bring the innovations of social entrepreneurs to life. Rewarding brilliant business ideas in nutrition, water or rural development, the prize expands their impact by scaling them up or replicating them.
Our open innovation platform [email protected]é also solves problems by combining the creative ingenuity of external innovators with the scale and expertise of Nestlé. Find out more about [email protected]é.

The Nestlé and the Swiss Development Cooperate to create the Social Investment Accelerator, which works with some of the prize entrants to develop their ideas. Kicking off in September 2018, the accelerator connects 12 social entrepreneurs in Africa with 36 program mentors – 20 of who are from Nestlé – and prepares them for a pitch with investors in April 2019.

Previous winners and runners-up


  • 2016 winner: , Cameroon

    Helping cassava farmers gain access to markets

    is an agricultural production and marketing agency in south-west Cameroon, working to connect smallholder farmers with sustainable markets.

    It has built a small integrated factory to transform cassava, a staple crop in Cameroon, into starch and garri, a type of tapioca, and sell these value-added goods to consumers through its own fresh food store (Agro-Mart). So far, the agency has helped more than 700 farmers increase productivity and income as they build long-term sustainable relationships with buyers.

    Agro-Hub received a prize of CHF 300 000, which it intends to use for upgrading its cassava processing facilities. This increase in production capacity will allow it to support more farmers, and contribute to improved food security and living conditions.

    “At the beginning, the production processes were carried out manually, but the Nestlé CSV Prize will help us in establishing a modern, integrated starch and garri factory. With this factory, we will be able to reduce the production process to one day or a few hours, potentially increasing our production to 10 tons of starch per week.”

    Atem Ernest Lefu, Co-Founder and CEO, Agro-Hub
